  2. Jean Valjean

    Jean Valjean Guest

    Common Rumors
    • He’s super-strong. Not like Superman or anything, but he can lift an astonishing amount of weight, especially for a man his age.
    • If you’re stateless and/or unemployed, you can go to the Riverboat for a free meal. Rumors are split as to whether the manager pays for this out of his own pocket or takes it out of the café’s profits, though anyone who knows him suspects it’s the former.
    • He’s French. Like, really, honest-to-God French. With the Frenchiest name ever.
    • He looks kind of scary, but he’s really not. Much nice, gr9 guy.
    Uncommon Rumors
    • Has a deep dark secret, probably not murder though. He’s too nice for that.
    • Possibly informant for the city guard? He sure used to spend a lot of time around a particular guard.
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • His big secret has something to do with being a criminal once. (The list of people who know this or even suspect it is extremely limited though.)
    • Cosette isn’t his biological daughter.
    • He's not a police spy unless you think dating the police is that much of a betrayal. (v. hard rumor to hear as they were both rather private.)
    • He helped out during the rebellion and was seen in the vicinity of Tower Hill with a gun. (Which is true, but he mostly helped the wounded of both sides, and the gun was only for defense.)
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • He’s a great guy to rob. No, seriously. He’ll only use as much force as is needed to get you to back off, and even then he’ll probably still hand over his wallet. You’ll just have to listen to a bit of a speech first.
    • He’s good at escaping from prison or being tied up.
    Wanted for Interesting Roleplay
    • Attempted blackmail over the rumor of his bearing arms against the queen’s forces. Alternatively, anyone who knows him as a fictional character in their world, and therefore his story, could try to blackmail him even without breaking the fourth wall. He really wouldn’t question someone just randomly knowing it. And this wouldn’t necessarily have to be for money. They could want him to help break someone out of the dungeons, for example, or commit a crime.
    • Attempted robbery. Someone could hear the rumor that he’s super nice and mistake that for him being a pushover.
    • Someone could get the wrong idea about the whole police spy thing and try to threaten him, idk.

    Common Rumors
    • He's large and scary-looking, but slow and deliberate with his movements.
    • He's not very talkative, either. He seems to be pretty shy and reserved.
    • He's also strong. Like, really strong. Like, I-can-pick-you-up-and-put-you-aside kind of strong.
    • He's a blacksmith from something like the Medieval Ages, so that's probably why.
    • He's got golden eyes but good luck making eye-contact with him.
    Uncommon Rumors
    • He's not slow, he just prefers to think before he opens his mouth.
    • He rarely, if ever, gets angry, but when he does... hoboy.
    • He's actually got a sense of humor, and can be sarcastic too.
    • He sometimes has trouble sleeping. Have you seen those black circles under his eyes? Something like chronic insomnia, maybe?
    • He seems to be able to hear and see things much better than most people.
    • His eyes glow in the dark? Talk about creepy!
    • And sometimes he talks like he can read your mind, yikes.
    • No way is he just human.
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • He's been around for a while, hasn't he? Two years now, is it?
    • He lost the love of his life a while back. Yeah, she vanished right before his eyes. That's rough, buddy.
    • You know, he's probably gotten into a few fights. Look, he might have a license, but no one carries an axe around for nothing, or uses the longbow, and have you seen how big longbows are?
    • Hey, you know what else has golden eyes? Wolves do. What're the bets that he's a werewolf, huh? That would explain how strong he is, right? And how he seems to smell bad stuff before everyone else does, and why he probably doesn't get enough sleep either.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • He's not a werewolf, he's a Wolfbrother. He does not change into a wolf, but he can talk with wolves. His sense of smell, hearing and sight are on par's with a wolf's, and he can even enter the World of Dreams through his kinship with wolves.
    • He lost Faile, the love of his life, in late February, Year 5. She's back as of September, Year 6, but he's still struggling to recover from the loss.
    • He's lost a lot of friends in his two years in Pandora, some he's had for over a year. Pandora is really taking its toll on him.

    Common Rumors
    • She used to be in the Army back in her world. Some kind of military lawyer or something.
    • She wasn't in the Army and she's just making things up. I mean, have you seen her? No way someone wearing heels like that was ever in the military.
    • She graduated from some big Ivy League school like Yale or Harvard. Or was it West Point?
    • Her world is one of the weird ones with superheroes in it, so she doesn't really bat an eye at the strange and unusual. She's the best one to have on a case like that.
    Uncommon Rumors
    • She'll chase any case to get a conviction under her belt.
    • Her neighbors have seen her jogging in the middle of the night, so she's either an insomniac or a serial killer. Probably the latter.

    • For someone who's so uptight, she sure has been spotted around Blackhaven quite a few times.

    • There's something not quite right about her. People say that she might be some kind of government secret agent or spy. Or maybe an assassin.

    • She once killed a man who tried to rob her.
    • Her father was a General in the Army who didn't hug her enough when she was growing up.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • She's not actually as straight-laced as she seems. Once, she committed pretty violent treason against the government in order to save two potential allies. However, it was the right thing to do.
    • She's an interrogator for A.R.M.O.U.R. and always has her ear to the ground for information about COBRA or HYDRA.

    • He can't grow a beard.
    • He's got something going on with his XO, isn't that against the rules on ships?
    • He hires killers to be his bodyguard.
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • He donated the tech off his ship to Cascade Bays medical center and that's why it's suddenly so good over there.
    • He and his crew ended a large organised gangs brief reign of terror out in the plains. If you go out there you can still find some of the camp in ruins! Badass!
    • Apparently he's ex-Navy and got kicked out dishonourably but nobody knows why. Sounds sketchy to me.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • Jim is in the process of recovering and dealing with his Protomolecule related PTSD.
    • There's a second Hybrid running around in Pandora and nobody has a clue it's out there, including Jim even though it appeared with him when he arrived; he was in and out of consciousness.
    • He's been subjected to lethal doses of radiation and is on meds for the rest of his life to deal with it.
    • The 'robot' implant in his arm is actually anti-cancer meds that he has to replace every so often otherwise he'll start popping tumours up everywhere and die fairly quickly.
    Wanted for Interesting Roleplay
    • Need to hire a spaceship that comes with a crew for any reason? Exploration, transportation, fighting the bad guys?
    • Anything that either assists in building a positive or negative reputation, e.g helping people (literally if someone asks him for help, he'll help them) or ruining people's nefarious plans (Jim's great at screwing everything up), lol would be fab.
    • Protomolecule stuff, if you want a chance to play with a bioweapon/super soldier, there's one going free.

    Common Rumors
    • He was a pirate King in his world
    • Yes, it's the Long John Silver (he even comes with a parrot now)
    • He worked his way up from being a captured cook to becoming the quartermaster (like...arguably most important person on a pirate ship plus 2. highest in rank after the captain plus voted by the crew) in crazily short time
    • He talked an entire nation of pirates into fighting a war rather than accepting offered pardons
    • He found the Urca de Lima treasure - which is, to say, 5 million pieces of eight (that's about £149,000,000 or $239,000,000 in current times) - some say he brought a big part of it with him to Pandora (which is bullshit because most of it was spend on the war etc)
    • He lost his lower left leg in one of his pirate adventures though very few know how it actually happened
    • He is an awfully clever guy
    • He has an endless amount of stories to tell and he doesn't only love telling them but is also very skilled at telling them
    Uncommon Rumors
    • He is the most trustworthy person there is
    • He is the last person you should trust
    • His wife is an african-american ex-slave (who left him once the war was over)
    • He once stomped a guy's skull into a bloody mess
    • All kinds of rumors circle around his past; where he comes from and who he actuallly is - some believe him to be the son of a wealthy English family, others think he was rejected by his parents as a child, some think he isn't even human to begin with or sold his soul to the sea (but nobody knows the truth)
    • He sleeps around and doesn't only share his bed with women
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • He can lure information out of anyone without causing any harm or speaking any threats
    • His trust is buyable
    • He killed his best friend and captain and then skillfully constructed a story around it
    • The most feared and gruesome buccaneer of the seven seas was afraid of him
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • John's a thief, a pathological liar and a master manipulator
    • But he is also pretty much an awfully damaged person, incapable of handling nor accepting affection and scared of commitment (he's a bundle of well hidden insecurities)
    • 90% of the stories told about him are utter bullshit (not that he'd ever tell anyone) and those that are true are a lot more complicated than they sound
    • He never wanted to be a pirate to begin with
    • John's at high risk of becoming an addict
    • With the loss of his leg he suffered a heavy mental trauma which he still isn't fully recovered from (and refuses to face in the first place)
    • He's either loyal to death and beyond or he'll backstab and sell you out to his own advantage without second thought, there isn't much in between
    • He has, in fact, killed his fair share of people and that not only during the war
    • He has pretty much lost everything but he remains a desperately stubborn optimist
    • He wants all the money

  14. Common Rumors
    • She's a vampire
    • She's related to those Mikaelsons
    • She's weirdly bad at technology
    • I hear she dated @Lucy Lane
    • She's a witch
    • I think I saw her with Supergirl the other day!
    Uncommon Rumors
    • She's a sister of those Mikaelsons
    • She's kind of scary...
    • Her siblings are vampires
    • She's more powerful than she lets on
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • She's the oldest of her siblings
    • Her siblings were the first ever vampires (in their world, at least)
    • She's way older than she looks.
    • She might even be immortal
    • She didn't grow up with her family.
    • There's something weird about that necklace of hers...
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • Freya has some issues when it comes to family, and close bonds with others. Her mother made a deal with her sister (Freya's aunt) to trade her first born in exchange for a fertility spell. When Freya was still young, Dahlia came to collect.
    • Her immortality wasn't real immortality in her world. The spell Dahlia cast on her let them both live one year...then sleep for 100. That's how she looks 20-something when she's actually over 1000.
    • Because of the immortality spell, Freya has about 1000 years of raw power stored up. She's way more powerful than your average witch.
    • The same spell makes it impossible for her to die. Or, rather, impossible for her to stay dead. Think sort of Jack Harkness: you can kill her, but she always comes back.

    Common Rumors
    • He took over the Paracelsus Research Clinic after Paracelsus was sent back to his world.
    • His world was incredibly violent. He was brought to Pandora wielding a chainsaw dagger and never leaves home without his futuristic gun.
    • He tends to find new arrivals in Pandora Town and directs them to the shelter.
    Uncommon Rumors
    • If he had it his way, he would not be in charge of anything.
    • He's gay, but not looking for a steady boyfriend.
    • He's extremely evasive about his history. Asking about his family will get him to deflect as best he can.
    • He disappeared in the middle of September, then suddenly reappeared, upset about something.
    • He tends to wander around dangerous areas of Pandora Town and right outside of it.
    • He's much happier in Pandora than his home world.

    • Pretty much every food ever is new to him and he hasn't quite learned self-control yet.

    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • Before getting brought to Pandora, he'd never been on a date. Ever.
    • He's quite possibly the last of the Enclave, the Pre-War government that ended his world. While he eventually decided against following in their footsteps, he does still feel some guilt for being connected to it.
    • Lady Luck does not favor him. Make all of the bets against him, you'll make so much money.

  16. Poppy Adams

    Poppy Adams Guest

    Common Rumors
    • Too nice for her own good. Probably a little naive? Or super fake. Is she dumb or is she hiding something?
    • She's obsessed with herself (not hard to figure out, given the fact that her name's on everything she owns).
    • Sweet as pie, but can be pretty aggressively forward about social interaction.
    • Speaking of pie, she has a weird vendetta against sugar.
    • Fantastic at networking; rapidly accumulating a business circle.
    • Maybe a little unhealthily obsessed with the American 1950s?
    Uncommon Rumors
    • Manipulative as hell. All of her smiles are fake.
    • She was in-hiding back home for some reason.
    • Her name/identity is fake. (Mostly false.)
    • Ex-military with control issues.
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • She's attempting to monopolize drug production and dealing in Pandora; her theme park and diner plans are just a fun, narcissistic cover-up.
    • She was in charge of some kind of criminal organization back home with a massive, global influence. Likely related to drugs.
    • More than kind of a sadist. Likes making and watching people squirm, especially people that she's recruiting.
    • Will do anything to get what she wants, or to intimidate/silence someone -- killing, torturing, etc.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • Her perfectionist tendencies come from her parents, who were far too hard on her, controlling, generally neglectful, and physically abusive.
    • Not totally opposed to cannibalism as a concept? Or at least making other people endure it.
    • Very paranoid and ready to put anyone on the chopping block -- literally -- as soon as something starts going wrong.
    • Freakishly high pain tolerance due to her involvement in the Golden Circle to ensure that information couldn't be exposed through torture.
    • Usually doesn't kill people herself. She gets around it by using technology or henchman but is more than willing to do the work if need be.
    • Everything for her is a Power Move. She has a hard time turning off business mode, and probably wouldn't even if she could because it leaves room for thoughts about her past that she would rather not have.
    • Very lonely, platonically and romantically, in all honesty. She doesn't really know how to make friends though and tends to just make associates~ instead.
    Wanted for Interesting Roleplay
    • Magic types. She's not familiar with it at all and she's still on the fence with how she feels about it.
    • People who can read minds or get impressions of people's pasts to bring up issues she hasn't faced. They would need to not run to law enforcement immediately though.

    Common Rumors
    • She arrived in a blood-stained dress.
    • She’s Arcade’s daughter (biological or adopted, depending on the rumour)
    • She’s Arcade’s sister.

    • The one thing that is known is that she can heal quickly, and they’re tech-based.
    • If you hurt her, Arcade will murder you.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • She’s a trained super-soldier, and is capable of murder, but hasn’t killed someone since entering Pandora.
    • Her childhood was extremely controlled and monitored, so most of what she knows is based around hurting and/or killing people.
    • Her powers are basically limited only by her imagination, so the more she reads and learns, the more powerful she becomes.
    • She’s actually a clone, and the person she was cloned from has an IQ of 200 (yes, I know that’s technically impossible). Eve would have intelligence matching that, but her mental growth was stunted. She’s still very smart.
    • She remembers everything she reads.
    Wanted for Interesting Roleplay
    • There are rumours that this eleven year old has powers. Powers that can be replicated. Sounds like an easy target for anyone interested in acruing power by any means.

    Common Rumors
    • He just somehow appeared in Pandora without the vines bringing him.
    • He's likely a more dangerous person than he seems to be.
    • He's homeless and doesn't seem to have any interest in finding a home.
    • He has some sort of weird mind-reading powers.
    • He keeps things hidden inside that hat.
    Uncommon Rumors
    • He might not actually be human.
    • He can teleport, since he seems to just disappear from one place and appear in another sometimes.
    • He turns invisible, and probably spies on people rather than reading their minds.
    • He hasn't been registered for his powers or his weapons.
    • He was and possibly still is a serial killer.
    • His powers and potential to know secrets about people/the last thoughts of dead things/being able to turn invisible would make him very valuable to the right people.
    Hard-To-Hear Rumors (Requires some digging/being in the right circles/etc.)
    • He seems to be on the verge of moving in with Arcade Gannon.
    • He's much younger than he seems to be.
    • Alternately, he's much older than he seems to be.
    • He can't read or write, despite evidence that he can leave crude notes and repeat stories from some books.
    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
    • He absolutely showed up from the vines, it was just away from anyone else, and he hid in his invisibility until he found people. He has no idea thus far what the vines meant to his being in Pandora.
    • He can't read or really write when left to his own devices, but can piggyback on the minds of others to learn what the symbols mean and how to use them.
    • Cole doesn't eat meat, not because of any problems with the concept of eating another creature, but because it's hard to eat something when you can hear it's last thoughts.
    • Cole's powers only work on those with pains or hurts to give him an in. Therefore, two types of people are immune to him reading them: those without any real pain in their life, and those who don't care in the slightest about the pain they cause or experience. AKA, truly evil people.
    Wanted for Interesting Roleplay
    • Honestly the fact that Cole can offer spying, investigative, and other potentials to higher-ups could be very interesting.
    • Also anything, really.

    Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But that I want you to know OOC)
